the republican was george bush and the day before the election he went and campaigned in pennsylvania. and the next day, george bush lost pennsylvania. last time around as well the sunday before the election, there's john mccain campaigning in pennsylvania. and then john mccain loses pennsylvania. right before the election, you can set your watch by it. the republican presidential contender will go and campaign in pennsylvania. and every year the media responds by saying, wow the republican is going to pennsylvania. maybe the republicans are going to win pennsylvania this year. does this mean the republicans are planning on winning pennsylvania this year e. and the republicans say, yes, we're going there because we're going to win pennsylvania and they lose it every year. the reason they do this every year is because they want to be seen as super confident. they want to be seen as so confident they are expanding the map. they want to create the impression that they are going to win big. they don't need to go to the so-called battleground states. they have locked all those up. they hav
on the positives with george bush being president, but i'm getting old. >> i don't remember either. >> the economy's 2%, and even if you want to paint it, it would take us eight or nine years to be back to the employment weather during the highs of the last administration. to get to 4%, it takes that long to get all the jobs back. people can't wait that long. >> if it never moves from this level -- kneeling kneel it's been -- neil: it's been a long time. i mean, we shouldn't -- averaging it out, and if this is the new normal, you know, less than normal, and this is as good as it gets, maybe for good awhile as it gets, i can understand why companies sort of, you know, pull their horns in. >> yeah, the new normal, neil, let's celebrate mediocrity. in the united states? neil: care. , i built a college career on that. >> so did i. that gets you through, but i want more of what adam is smoking in california, neil. he's talking about housing should recover, banks should legend. those are hopey things we can't count on to grow the economy. we need real numbers out there, which as we noted are not there.
into a 2004 nail biter. look at the polls in ohio, today barack obama is almost exactly where george w. bush was in the polls in ohio 8 years ago. look at the job approval ratings, barack obama's job approval rating is almost exactly where george w. bush's approval rating is. the only thing looking better for romney at this point is obama is worse off in the polls. george w. bush had a 1.5 percentage-point lead going into election day and right now it is even. >> greta: rick what is the best thing politically that governor romney is looking at right now, when looks at this and what is the best thing politically president obama is looking at when they look at what is winding down between now and tuesday? >> romney looks at the number among independents and also looks at the possibility of building this national lead and i think closing on the economy. closing with what works for him in terms of making the argument he is the candidate of change. he has to hope for a big weekend to turn things around a little bit in terms of the close and i think president obama has to feel good about how thing
, 800,000 jobs lost. he inherited what george bush and dick cheney gave him. in the four years he's been president, he's made steady improvement. he stabilized the financial system, he saved the automobile industry. he needs another four years in order to make more improvements because there's still lots of improvements that need to be made including more jobs. so let's give him four years rather than go to a man who is so slick that we don't even know from the primaries to now what he stands for. >> colonel wilkerson, in the comment he made, he said when you look at colin powell, there may be other reasons he would support president obama. what does this say about the republican party? isn't this getting to be somewhat of a brand of the republican party? >> i think it was an unfortunate slip of words, but you're insinuating something that is absolutely accurate. my party, unfortunately, is the of those people who are still basing their decision on race. let me be candid. my party is full of racists. the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants president obama out of the whit
terms as wisconsin governor and was george w. bush's secretary of health and human services. she's 50, openly gay and a 14-year veteran of the house of representatives. up for grabs is the senate seat left open by retiring democrat herb cole which republicans desperately want to help them win a majority. >> i'm tommy thompson. >> reporter: both sides are pooring in cash, a state record $40 million has been spent so far on this election. almost three-fourths coming from groups that aren't directly associated with the candidates but are very interested in the outcome. >> you can't turn on your tv right now without running into ads for tammy and tommy. >> reporter: daniel bice has been covering wisconsin politics for more than 20 years. this race he says is all about attacking the opponent. >> she's trying to define thompson as someone who was a good governor but no longer supports the interests of wisconsin. >> tommy thompson, he's not for you anymore. >> he's trying to define her not as the nice tammy baldwin that you see on tv but as an extreme liberal who votes in a way people in wis
. that alone is a big step forward. >> or on george bush. >> but that is out there on the internet. you can find that. this is a thing where i agree at the margins, president obama looking presidential. this is good for him. at the same time, hurricane are a better opportunity to make a mistake and hurt yourself than do lasting good. freezing the campaign in place, i'm not sure is beneficial to obama. romney had legitimate momentu momentum. we may not get polling for a few days. it will suspend polls to create the panic needle park for people in this room. they won't get a cross tab fixed. that is an issue. >> we get a poll a second around here. >> the national gallup poll that we get once a month. romney is a slight lead here. you have ohio. the latest rasmussen report has romney ahead. the real clear has president obama with lead in ohio. there is another ohio poll out today that is a tie. 49. it seems like president obama and romney were tied according to many polls. obama people claim he had a lead in ohio. changed the dynamic on the ground. >> we now have a rasmussen poll, the first, i
brooks was a deputy secretary of state under president george w. bush. nick burns, form he undersecretary for political affairs on the democratic side. and republican. good to see both of you. let me ask you your reaction first to this. to suzanne's reporting what the cia says happened. >> as a cia alumni, i'm not surprise told at the bravery of these officers. these people have been at war for many years now and their bravery is no surprise whatsoever. i'm sure they did what they felt they needed to do to protect their colleagues as well as other americans. i think we're deeply indebted to them. >> nick, ely lake from the daily beast, i know you're familiar with his reporting. he's done some fantastic reporting. he's saying the state department never requested military back-up the night of the benghazi attack. normally that would have been the responsibility of the ambassador who of course was in the heat of the moment there. so that then would have fallen to the state department to make that decision, and as we know, they could hear it in real-time. does this surprise you? >> you know,
. >> peter brooks a deputy secretary of state under george w. bush, and nick burns, former undersecretary for political affairs on the democratic side. and republican. let me ask for reaction first, peter. to what the cia says happened? >> i'm not surprised of the bravery of these officers. these people have been at war for many years and the bravery is no surprise whatsoever. i'm sure they did what they felt they needed to do to protect their fellow colleagues as well as other americans, and i think we're deeply indebted to them. >>> eli lake from "the daily beast." he has done some fantastic reporting. saying that the state department never requested military backup the night of the benghazi attack. normally, that would be the responsibility of the ambassador. that would have fallen to the state department to make that decision and they could hear it in real time, does this surprise you? >> you know, erin, i have to say, as i said before, and as you know, i served not just in democratic administrations, but republican administrations, including for george w. bush, i really find it distu
's boss, george herbert walker bush, has endorsed mitt romney all along, and frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder ether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, i think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud colin for standing with him. >> with me now is newark mayor and obama supporter, cory booker. i watched you this morning. you seemed to be slightly biting your lip about this, but a lot of people have been getting very angry because they say whichever way john sununu tries to wriggle off the hook on this, i asked him the question, he gave a blunt answer. i asked him to clarify it, he gave a sort of blunter second answer. leaving no real wriggle room at all. the guy was saying, without any doubt, that the reason that colin powell, a four-star retired general, one of the great statesmen of modern america, the reason he has voted for barack obama is because of the color of his
florida went for george w. bush by 537 votes? out of millions cast. >> i am. because you can't ever get that out of your head because it was just such a surprise. i can tell you, you know, it's not whether i hear them, it's whether both these campaigns hear them. one of the things i was listening to james baker the other day who of course was the lead lawyer for the then-candidate bush in 2000 who said, look, none of us ever expected this would happen. we weren't ready for a recount when it suddenly was obvious they needed one. both sides have lawyers that have been studying sometimes automatic recounts in some states. they've been looking at all the voter laws in these swing states just for the possibility that this could happen in ohio or colorado or florida or, you know, any of the -- virginia, any of those other swing states. >> you're seeing evidence in ohio, john, of a lot of lawyers getting ready to get involved if necessary. >> reporter: and let's hope it doesn't happen. but they're watching this through the early voting process. there are observers when you go to the early voti
the responsibility elsewhere. the economy, it's george bush's fault. benghazi, hillary clinton's fault. well, the buck stops with the president of the united states. he asked for the job. it's his responsibility to stay on top of it and he right now is not staying on top of this recovery. >> rupert murdoch has tweeted tonight that he thinks that governor christie should now publicly declare very loudly and clearly, redeclare his support for mitt romney given all the praise he's lavished on the president and if he doesn't, then he would bear the blame, according to mr. murdoch, for the next four years in barack obama gets in. what do you make of that? >> oh, i don't go that far at all. i think at the point at which chris christie was saying that it was all quite legitimate. i think president obama at the beginning of this did keep his concentration on this and i think he was entitled to what chris christie said about him. what i'm saying is in the last couple of days, he has been 100% devoted to running for office. he has taken his eye off the ball and in some parts of new york, some parts of
chief of staff to president george w. bush, karl rove. fox is a contributor. good to have you with us. you have said from the outset that this would be a tight race. did you really expected to be this tech??3 >> the -- that is hard to say, but it will be tight. this will not be settled until the wee hours of wednesday morning. maybe sometime wednesday they will finish counting the ballots, but it will be very tight. lou: and in your most recent op-ed in the "wall street journal" you said it is all about the numbers. amongst the numbers you put a run the victory by two or three percentage points. are you updating that here tonight? are you still convinced of that margin? >> i still think it will e close to that margin. i do think there was an impact on this race to my subtle impact. let's go beyond the polls. let's start looking at the actual turnout. the key for me is ohio. it. lou: all right. i love it. >> there we go. 547,000 democrats have voted early or cast an absentee ballot early or have requested an absentee ballots compared to 470,000 republicans. democrats traditionally out
safety chief under president george w. bush. thank you so much for coming on the program. you know, we realized today once you have food and water, the next thing everybody is worried about is energy, whether it is the power in your home or fuel in cars. i mean that's what we really need to rebuild and fix everything that is going on. let's start with energy here in the northeast. i mean when do you think people will get power back? how hard is that? >> well, melissa, right now, we've got about 8 million people without power. although all of the utilities have extra crews in, you know, frankly, they're going to be people without power for the next seven to 10 days. melissa: yeah, it always takes longer than you think. when you're one of those people without power and saying will it be back in a few hours, the answer is always no. what is the toll on businesses and economies? you see businesses in the affected area have no power. so they can't pay their bills. they can't do whatever their business is. i mean it's a big problem. >> it is a big problem. we've heard economists are all over
to president george w. bush. welcome back to the show. always great to have you here. >> glad to be with you. gerri: i want to play a little bit of the sounds of our viewers can get a sense of the town. >> short. >> the jobs, where are the 9 million more jobs the president obama promised his stimulus would have created by. [speaking in native tongue] there in china, mexico, canada, countries that have made the sales more attractive for entrepreneurs and business and investment. even as president obama's policies have made it less attractive for them here. thing. gerri: and we have one more jobs report to come. what do you expect? is it going to help romney or the president? >> i don't think its going to make much difference at all. if you look at the picture that the economy has ben traveling through for the past three years now, basically we're in a situaaion where we have continued slow growth. we have growth at about 2 percent per year since the turnaround in june of 2009. i normal recovery should have doubled that, and unless we get to double that kind of growth are not going to have sig
've seen this before. in 2000, karl rove said, george w. bush was going to win california. they spent millions and millions of dollars on advertising there. they sent bush out there, precious time, near the end of the campaign. i said, tad devine, carter, those of us involved in that campaign, so we're not spending one dime in california, and gore won the state by 1.3 million votes. the wish can't become father to the reality, which is what's going on here. >> like a team trying to talk their way to a championship instead of playing the game, so to speak. shouldn't romney have florida wrapped up? >> he should. he has a lot of -- there, he has structural advantages because he's got the governor and virtually all the statewide officials. but i think the medicare, and the republicans like to say, oh, we've countered it with this lie about a $716 billion cut under obama care, when in fact there is no such cut. there's no cut in benefits. i think that seniors have figured out two things. one, romney wants to replace medicare with voucher care. they don't like it. but isn't it the latino an
something new about one of the candidates and the way that they -- say, george w. bush's famous dui story came out just before the 2000 race did. i think you will hear a lot of romney people blame the storm if he loses, but i tend to think that where we were before the storm is where we'll end up. >> i have to leave with you this tweet. ricky gervais tweeted. just arrived back at my new york home. still the greatest city in the world. f you, sandy. welcome back, ricky. and you have given everyone at home a bit of a smile. back after the break. those surprising little things she does still make you take notice. there are a million reasons why. but your erectile dysfunction that could be a question of blood flow. cialis for daily use helps you be ready anytime the moment's right. you can be more confident in your ability to be ready. and the same cialis is the only daily ed tablet approved to treat ed and symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently or urgently. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medications, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sexual activity.
to george h. w. bush and karen, an advisor to president obama and former ambassador to the organization of economic cooperation and development. welcome to you both. with this move people who are on the fence? >> no. anybody on the fence understands the u.s. economy is weak. sure, you can say 7.9% unemployment is an improvement. i can't even say that is an improvement. the obama administration pledged they would drop down upon the great 5.4%. that certainly didn't happen. i'm curious as voters look at the newspapers tomorrow will the newspapers tell the truth that in this report touted as being positive wages went down. hourly earnings went down, hours worked went down. this is really a sad commentary if we have to interpret this somehow positively. gerri: clearly we have a long ways to go, wants you to hear something the president said today on the campaign trail and respond. here is the president. >> 2008 we were in the middle of two wars. today our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs and this morning we learned the companies hired more workers in october t
